I am a 35 year old Cervical Cancer survivor! Last Jan 04 I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer on my birthday - 1/12! What a birthday
present! A few years ago I did have the LEEP procedure and thought that
everything was fine. My cancer was very progressive and was caught early. It was only after a couple of months that it was diagnosed! I spend about 5 months at Wake Forest University Medical Center with the best doctors and nurses that I could have wished for! I went through 288 hours of chemo-cisplatin & platnium 5FU. I also went through 25 rounds of external radiation and internal radiation implants. If is was not for such incredible doctors, nurses and asupportive family, I do not think that I would be here today. Please do not think that you are alone in this matter. I wish that we could form a "Women^s Cancer" support group....not just for breast cancer, but for all of women^s cancer issues! Stay Srong!
